Each Grange, opening in regular form, must have the open Bible displayed and the American flag displayed in the hall. The new member receives the from the Subordinate Grange the first four degrees, the Pomona Grange confers the Fifth Degree, the State Grange confers the Sixth Degree, and National Grange the Seventh Degree.
